Synopsis

The experiences of female runaways in Iran are captured with honesty and compassion in this eye-opening documentary. A powerful project that makes you put your own family life into perspective, it looks at the day-to-day workings of a women’s refuge in the capital city, Tehran. Five teenage residents provide the focus, as counsellors try to resolve the frequently shocking issues that have driven them from their homes. The girls' stories are sad and thought provoking - from Atena, a twice-divorced 18-year-old who fled her stepfather's rape attempt, to Parisa, the victim of an abusive, drug-addicted dad. But what's so amazing and inspirational is how much hope and determination these young women possess, no matter how uncertain their futures.
